The Nigeria Women’s Premier League (NWPL) has produced talents that the African continent should be proud of.

Football is amongst the most followed sports on social media. Ever since the social media revolution, the number of followers and interactions each team has on social media as if the field wasn’t enough, has become another ground for competition for the various teams. Moreover, due to the omnipresence of social media, it has become extremely important for clubs to engage with fans across all major platforms, in order to gather a bigger audience to expand the brand value of the teams and eventually monetize the audience.
